The compiler's introduction to this trilingual San-English-Afrikaans dictionary gives important information that helps to place it in perspective. In 1961, the compiler was posted in the territory that is now Namibia doing missionary work until his retirement in 1998. The San community among whom he worked lived, and some continue to live, in Northern Namibia around the Tsumkwe area. According to the compiler and from what is known from other sources, the South African army moved around these Tsumkwe speech communities during the Namibia independence struggle.
